You could glue the stamin to the inside of the flower minus the wire. I think that will work.

I had a set of cutters & formers some time back. The cutter(s) was something like the 3 petal cutter from Wilton one would use to make most orchids and lilies.
You would put 2 of thos together - stacked w/the petals off center. If you look in my gallery I have at least one pic using them.....I'll go see if I can find the link for you....

All of those lilies were made with NO wires at all.
You need a wide, but not deep cup to dry/shape them in.
